It’s been some time since we had one of our own colleagues on HODINKEE Radio, however I guarantee this one merited the stand by. This week, Gray and I plunk down with senior author James Stacey, who shares the amazing story of how he went from an experience looking for child to a watch fan with a normal everyday employment to a full-time essayist, picture taker, and the sky is the limit from there. James has a story that I think will tick a ton of natural boxes for individuals, and he’s the uncommon illustration of somebody who had the option to really transform his interests into his job, for the most part through buckling down, learning a ton, and associating with other extraordinary people.
While we obviously address where James comes from, what he was doing before he worked in watches, and how he at last advanced toward HODINKEE, we get into a ton of other stuff as well. We talk about the absolute most stunning experiences James has ever experienced, we examine his own watch assortment and the stuff for a watch to make the cut, we consider what happens when your side interest becomes your work, and we visit about James’ different interests, which incorporate vehicles, cameras, films, and the sky is the limit from there. I’ve known James for pretty much 10 years, I actually educated a ton during our discussion. I would prefer not to ruin excessively, so I’m simply going to leave it at that.
We trust you appreciate Episode 77 of HODINKEE Radio. Look at the show notes beneath, and let us understand your opinion in the comments. In case you’re desiring more HODINKEE proofreader interviews, make certain to look at our talks with Ben , Cara , Jack , and Joe too.
You realized this watch would have been on a dim NATO, isn’t that so? ( If not, look at this. ) This Doxa Sub 300 Professional was made to praise the notorious plunge watch’s 50th commemoration, and it’s one of only 300 pieces delivered. It’s additionally a lovely wonderful James Stacey watch. It’s from a brand with genuine history, it in a split second gets you some road cred with the genuine watch geeks, and it’s a go-anyplace, do-anything sort of game watch. I end up reasoning the orange dial goes extraordinary with that NATO, and I’ve generally been a fanatic of the matching of that barrel-formed case with the multi-level bezel, giving the watch a truly interesting arrangement of extents. This is one of James’ unsurpassed most loved watches, and for a lot of generally excellent reasons.
